This claims it works for 6, 7, 8 inch balancers. On a smaller balancer the timing tab is so far away from the timing marks it's darn near impossible to know where it actually lines up. I bent the timing marks so they were right next to the balancer and that helped but it's still difficult to determine exactly where it's pointing. More like within 4 degrees. One of the screw holes that hold the adjustable timing pointer to the base was stripped out too.
I wasn't expecting much for $3, but I was expecting the thing to fit, considering I'm using the Spectre Aluminum timing cover that specifically says to use this matching timing pointer.
I had to "adjust" it a bit to line up with the two bolt holes on the cover, meaning I had to flatten out the roundness of the bends and make it work. While its not nice and shiny any more, I suppose it will still do its job. Luckily it's adjustable.
You get what you pay for. And for the price, you can't ask for much more than this. Fit and finish is good, not great. Bolts up well and is accurate. I do however see the adjustment screws stripping out over time due to their design.
